Happy birthday Geovanny and Roberto!

Tonight, we celebrated the birthdays of Geovanny and Roberto, who both had birthdays in June. You can be assured that once you meet Geovanny, you will never forget his birthday for the rest of your life, nor will he forget yours. Birthdays are very important to him. Any time he meets somebody new, he pulls out his little construction paper notepad and writes their names and birthday down to hold onto forever. It is so sweet to see how excited he gets when finding out that little fact about new friends. Since birthdays are such a big deal to him, we had been looking forward to this party for quite some time!

We invited 9 of the residents, and 15 showed up. What's an extra 6 anyway? :)

We couldn't decide on a theme for the party, so it was kind of like a Hawaiian/Hollywood/Birthday party. Most of them had an abundance of leis around their neck, they loved the cute little umbrellas to put in with their Kolashanpan (a favorite soda down here!), and we had a Hollywood themed table runner. I don't think they minded the randomness of this fiesta :)

One thing was for sure, they LOVED the peanut butter & jelly sandwiches! We found out last week that those are one of their favorite meals, so of course we had pb&j's for tonight's party.

Thanks to Pinterest, Melissa discovered the "brownie in a cup" recipe, which is a super easy recipe that included brownies being made in a coffee cup for just one minute, and adding a little (or a lot) of ice cream and sprinkles on top! Easy and delicious! 

Before indulging in these delicious treats, we all sang happy birthday (both in English and Spanish!) to Geovanny and Roberto. The birthday boys loved it while their friends sang loud and proud!

And, of course, it wouldn't be a party without ChuChu, the pet dog.

After consuming 6 (yes, 6) liters of soda and eating brownie sundaes, it's safe to say everyone was on an extreme sugar rush by the end of the night!

And this was the aftermath.... We might invest in paper plates next time ;)

Happy birthday, Roberto and Geovanny!!!!

I'm so excited that you two are there at the Hogar. You both seem great and it's obvious they love you. It's refreshing to read your posts and remember the time I spent there with them and how special they are!
